Question about Sony STR-DE625

Surround sound distortion

Hello. I have a Sony STR-K740P hooked to surround sound. I recently noticed that the sound is distorted in two of the rear speakers. It doesn't happen all the time, only on certain channels - those airing surround I suppose. I keep the speaker setting in "NORM.SURR." mode, as this seems to have generated the best output in the past. Do receivers commonly go out? Can it be cleaned for better performance? Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

Receivers like this will incorrectly decode rear channel audio and pass it on to the rear channels as distorted audio. Make sure the source being used really has rear channel information encoded into it. It could have other issues but check this first.

No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475


I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

Distorted audio on my surround sound


If it does it with just the one disc it is probably the file that you burned. Does the file sound ok on the computer? Sometimes files that are downloaded have bad audio tracks and I have seen cases where the encoding software that you are using messes up the file when it is modifying the file.
Try another DVD or Blu-Ray disc and see if it still distorts. If it does then it may be a setting in the player or in the receiver.

Cheers

Sony STR de845, 5.1 Surround does not work. 3.2 is indicated o


3.2 IS the "5.1" mode for this receiver. 3.2 is indicating that you have 3 front channels and 2 rear channels. The ".1" is applied to all the speakers (LFE). If you read the manual on page 37, you'll see that "3.2" is displayed with either "Dolby Digital 3.2" or "DTS 3.2". The little icons of the speakers in the display window will show you which channels are active. The bottom line is as long as you see the blue light, it's decoding multi-channel discreet surround sound (at least 5.1).

No sound from back speakers


Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.

Rear speakers not working on STR-K740P


The only way your surround sound will work is if you have either the coaxial or fiber optic digital hookups attached to a PS3/Blueray/DVD/Cable box/Satellite box that have digital sound outputs. If you are just using the 1970's version of the red/white audio cables that is stero only.
